OK, ladies, brace yourselves and pay attention, because Kevin Swanson of the right-wing, thoroughly batshit crazy Generations Radio has a message for you, so listen up:
You are walking, talking, one-woman cemeteries.
In this day and age, it’s really hard to know just how low these religious a-holes will go in vilifying women, because just when you think they’ve vocalized the worst possible thought, some dipshit appears out of nowhere and says something even more deplorable. So, consider the bar now lowered from the gutter to the putrid depths of the nation’s now overcrowded sewers. Here’s what Swanson, harbinger of womanly death, would like 99% of the country’s women to be aware of:
I’m beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women’s wombs after they’ve gone through the surgery, and they’ve compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill. And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.
Wow. After that, I guess I don’t feel so bad in calling Rick Santorum “The Dead Baby Candidate.” That post caused me a lot of grief because I thought I’d crossed an unpalatable line, but leave it to the right-wingers of Santorum’s ilk to one-up me.
Of course, when Swanson says “certain doctors” and “certain scientists,” he means nothing more than right-wing quackery that has no basis in actual science or research or rational thought. And it’s glaringly, embarrassingly obvious that Swanson, much like his right-wing whack-jobs contemporaries, lacks a basic, working knowledge of female biology and just how the female body works, much less how it works on birth control. So let’s take a quick, little tutorial for right-wing dummies, shall we? From our friends at Planned Parenthood:
It’s pretty common for people to be confused about how birth control pills work. Here’s what it boils down to: birth control pills are made of hormones. Hormones are chemicals made in our bodies. They control how different parts of our bodies work.
The hormones in the pill work by
- Keeping eggs from leaving the ovaries. Pregnancy cannot happen if there is no egg to join with sperm.
- Making cervical mucus thicker. This keeps sperm from getting to the eggs.
So, I think it’s safe to say that women’s wombs are NOT “embedded” with “tiny fetuses,” because there is no fetus if the egg doesn’t experience a how-do-you-do from the sperm, you scum-sucking idiot!
Are we clear?
As mud, to people like Swanson apparently.
Instead of giving these complete and utter morons tax-exempt status, can we do these jack-offs a favor and send them back to high school for a required course in basic biology?
Because, for the love of f@%king Pete, the stupid…it burns…
